On Summer enrollee Tristan Leigh: "This is just a starting point for him. Biggest concern from him is how quickly he can learn what to do. He's got big physical attributes. Main thing right out of the gate is, where is his head? The physical stuff will come along with time."

Swinney very excited about potential of Tristan Leigh. Is physically ready but they have to see where he is from mental standpoint seeing as he wasn't an early enrollees.

"Physically he's in a good place. Where is he mentally?"
